The most conventional way of stunning is by means of a water bath. The birds, that hang in the shackles of the overhead conveyor by their feet, are lead through the bath, in which only their heads are immersed. In the water bath an electrode is placed which is connected to the control unit. The other electrode is formed by a stainless steel shackle guide, that touches the shackles which are placed above the bath. In that way an electric current is lead from the electrode in the water bath to the water, through the head and body of the bird to the feet, from the feet to the shackle and shackle guide.
